A Viable Alternative
Today's Belmont Park feature is the restricted Bit O Whimsy for 3YO fillies going 9 furlongs on turf and for a relatively small field is competitive from end to end.
The entire group is in various stages of development but an early line of 15-1 on Alternative Meds seems inappropriate. While she is a New York bred facing open fillies, she's won both grass starts, including one over the course, has handled disparate course conditions and is strongly bred for added distance on dam's side. Young Jose Ortiz was aboard for both scores.
Taking Alternative Meds to win at 8-1 or greater and key boxing her in money positions with Caroline Thomas (7-2) and Maximova (2-1).
